Has anyone gotten NTFS-3G to work. My ntfs drive wont mount and I need it badly. If anyone has figured it out please let me know.

Haven't tried ntfs-3g but I have installed Paragon NTFS 7.0.2
However, it will only mount for me in 32 bit mode.

Hmm thats interesting. I will try 32 bit mode. Will I see a big slowdown if I am running the system in 32bit?

macfuse, which is a program ntfs3g installs along side it, hasn't been ported to work with -x64 mode yet. got to wait for it. however -x32 works fine. and you most likely wont see any noticeable difference between the two.

MacFUSE very well was released for SL, including x64 mode. Read http://code.google.c.../wiki/CHANGELOG

But afaik, ntfs-3g isn't available for x64 right now, so still no write access to ntfs drives :)

OK so I am now booting into 32 bit and it works just fine. Was doing some tests and it seems that they system is running exactly the same.

One thing I found very interesting is that I get about 1000 points higher in geek bench in 10.6 then I did in 10.5.8 with the exact same system. After looking into some more of the details it seems that snow leopard is handling video a lot better.

Has anyone else seen a different in scores. This really excites me because I do see a huge performance increase from 10.5.8 on my hackintosh.

On my macbook however, I have noticed that it is about the same. I score almost the same with geek bench as I did before in 10.5.8. It just seems strange to me to see such a huge increase in speed in one computer but not anything in the other. I am guessing that because my macbook has integrated graphics it doesnt use opencl.

that was back in december of last year, its obviously out of date

read this from an official ntfs-3g developer.
